Feds probing Apple’s ban of Google Voice app

Technology

I wasn’t going to blog about this, but it just got a lot more interesting.

On Tuesday Apple rejected an iPhone app for Google Voice, a free VoIP service that lets users link their various phone numbers together. Immediately a googol of Google fans cried foul, saying the iPhone maker was stifling innovation by acting only in its own self-interest.

Now, late Friday, comes word via The Wall Street Journal that the Federal Communications Commission has sent letters to Google, Apple and iPhone carrier AT&T, wanting to know more about Apple’s practices of late.

A clash of the titans is brewing, it seems. And now the government is getting involved.
